In this episode, we talk to Dr. Kevin Cordi about his "storybox" project. What began as an exchange of stories between Kevin and a colleague in Brazil has evolved to include authors and poets creating partial stories to be finished by middle and high school students. In addition, you’ll hear a few stories from a good old collection called "Stories in my Pocket," from Martha Hamilton and Mitch Weiss, in which they curate stories for kids to tell.

These next stories were recorded in 1998, so the tellers are grownup now, but these performances are from a good old collection called “Stories in My Pocket,” stories curated by Martha Hamilton and Mitch Weiss, designed for kids to tell.
